Postcards from the Edge

November 10, 2010

We usually travel with a functional but soulless black rolling suitcase,
leaving us longing for the old days, when nothing but a glamorous Louis
Vuitton trunk covered in vintage hotel labels would do.

At least we can still write home in style with a box of 30 postcards of
vintage labels ($75) from the Louis
Vuitton Collection
, representing great hotels of the world, like the
Hotel de Crillon in Paris and the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok. Lore has
it that the labels were artfully placed as a way for hotel staff to
secretly communicate to each other what kind of tipper a guest would be.

Perhaps were ok with our unlabelled suitcase, after all.
